I remember hearing little disagreement when one airline wanted to force heavier people to purchase two seats. The rationale seemed to be that heavier people add more to the total weight of the airplane necessitating the use of more fuel and therefore should pay more.
But logic seems to disappear and prejudice prevails when people see someone who is heavy. Here are some further examples that were given to me by well spouse support groups.
Here’s another: “I vacationed with a friend who does not have a weight problem like I do. A meal did not go by without her noticing what I was eating and commenting that I ate so much less than she did. Despite this, by the end our vacation she couldn’t resist (for my benefit of course) telling me that I really should take off the excess weight and eat less.
